Ossining Food Pantry Spring 2017 Update
Hello and Happy Spring!  To keep you, our most dedicated donors and volunteers, up to date with Ossining Food Pantry happenings, we are starting a quarterly email update.  We plan to highlight important Food Pantry milestones and events and share news of our efforts to help feed the needy from the Greater Ossining Area.  Food insecurity is a reality for many people in the Ossining and Briarcliff Manor area.  We thank you for your ongoing support and hope you enjoy reading about the latest Food Pantry news.  Please forward this email to anyone who might like to learn more about our efforts.  Your help is needed!

Spring Mailing - Calling All Donors!
Our family of generous donors and volunteers recently received the Spring mailing requesting a donation to support the Food Pantry.  As an all-volunteer organization, virtually every dollar of every donation goes directly towards the cost of food we distribute on Thursday nights and Friday mornings at Trinity Church - or deliver to those who can't come to us.

The Food Pantry does not receive funding from the federal government.  We don't receive direct aid from the state either.  It is through the generous donations from people like you that we are able to keep our doors open. 
To donate, please follow the link to our website: 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT!
